The calm

img_3830During the calm

No storm poured down on us nor did the streets flood.

I didn’t need confirmation from you or anyone else.

I just wake up one morning.

Solely with the purpose, to do what everyone told me to do.

And honestly…

No one was set on fire to burn for their sins nor did buildings get scorched.

The ones around me were pleased.

They viewed my interest in their wants and their desires as a way for them to stay on course.

And you know what…

No credible source said aliens landed nor did monuments crumble to the ground due to the land trembling.

The more I began to speak like them. Is the more I began to think with them.

Be like them. Wanting them to wake up in the morning.

Solely, to do what ever I told them to do.

And yet…

No airborne disease were released nor did Jay z drop a new album overnight.

Everything is just calm.

  1. Beautiful poem. Didn’t know where to put this since I couldn’t find a contact page, so I’ll just put it here if you don’t mind. I just wanted to say Happy Easter to you and yours 🙂 I hope you have a great day and thank you for following Fluffybutts Family!
